Kode 9 has for over a decade now, been at the forefront of the underground urban music scene in the UK. He is highly regarded by many in the ever-enlarging dubstep community, cited as one of the most innovating producers in the world. His roots, like many of his peers, lie in Old School Jungle, UK Garage and 2 step. This collaboration with The Spaceape, a visual artist and poet, was the second album to be released on his own Hyperdub label in 2006. The record, although unlike the dubstep you may have raved to on the dance floor, will leave you stunned by Kode9's perfectly timed, often minimal beats as he expertly weaves his own poetry around The Spaceape's masterful lyricism. It is not an album you can listen to lightly and there are no fillers. With each and every glorious track you will find beauty and profound musical achievement. It is impossible for me to pick out stand out tracks, just buy the album and you will find your favorites changing as your perception of the record deepens with each listen. As the dubstep scene continues to revolutionize, this is one of the few records that transcends the decay of time. I am almost certain, that when we come out the other side of this peaking dubstep culture, this album will still be cited as one of the genre's finest accomplishments.
